Ahem... HonestBro... just a minute huh?
Please don't use me as a barb against the sistas on this site or what you think they want, blah blah.
We women all want different things - we are NOT monolithic. The common human desire is to find a mate, a companion, love, intimacy, friendship, etc. ideally a happy mix of all these things in one partner.
That I want a creative, artistic (let's not forget sensual and sexy as well, lol) guy is just what I want. Like I said a lot of other women want that too. But that kind of guy doesn't float every woman's boat. Why should any other woman want the same as what I want? And dammed if they do there's enough competition already, lol
It doesn't matter if he is a janitor, a rubbish collector or the Dean in a university, if he is cute, sensitive, faithful, smart, loving guy, women's radar will FIND HIM!
No matter what attributes or incomes are on the male or female 'desirable mate' checklist, fate tends to jumble it all up and you meet infinite possibilities for relationships. There's a difference between opportunities and making a choices. Realistically, even the most cerebral and poetic garbage collector is unlikely to 'bump into' a sista with a PhD unless he is at that poetry spoken word night and the sista is there to listen to poetry. And I think the conversation will have been bubbling along a little while before any mention of PhD's and careers.
